How to Get Tight Glutes and Thighs

Monday, January 10, 2011

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but there is no way around it. If you want to have tight glutes and thighs you must exercise and eat right. Not only will you need to do cardio but you will also need to do some weight resistance training to really tighten up your glutes and thighs.

Tight Glutes and Thighs

These are large muscle groups so they tend to require more effort and perceived exertion. People either love to work their legs or they hate it. Mental focus will be key to your success. Envision your goal and work for it.

My favorite all around glute and thigh exercise is the stationary lunge, difficult but effective. My second favorite is squats. Once you can do sets of 12 with just your body weight you will want to add dumbbells. Start with a 5lb dumbbell in each hand graduating as they become easier.

3 sets of 12 for each of the two exercises should be plenty. Do these exercise once or twice a week but no more.

To burn fat do 20-30 minutes of HIIT cardio 3 times a week. These two things, resistance training and cardio, will get you on the right track to tight glutes and thighs.

Some great "diet" advice would be:

1. Stay away from processed food

2. Avoid white bread

3. Eat potatoes sparingly

4. Limit carbs after 5pm

5. Get plenty of fiber

6. Drink 8-10 glasses of water a day

7. Make sure and get your protein (1 gram per lb of boby weight)

8. Don't skip breakfast

9. Get your sleep, strive for 8 hours a night

And remember, you can work your glutes and thighs to death but if your eating habits are bad you won't see the muscle your building underneath all the fat.
